Free upcoming webinar: Adhesion Challenges — Corona Treatment vs. Plasma Treatments
TAPPI
Do you have a good understanding of the roots of surface treatment challenges for polymeric, metallic, and composite materials? Can you describe the corona and plasma treatment mechanisms which overcome those challenges? If not, then you should participate in the one hour webinar, "Corona Treatments vs. Plasma Treatments" at 10 a.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 25.

Corona discharges and Atmospheric pressure plasmas are valuable tools for the surface treatment of materials prior to printing, laminating, coating, painting, bonding, and other applications. They are used in a diverse number of manufacturing environments such as packaging, converting, medical, electronics, aerospace, automotive, solar, battery, and many others. The applications in these industries all have one thing in common – adhesion challenges.

Join Rory Wolf, Business Unit Manager for ITW's Pillar Technologies, in Hartland, Wisconsin, as he breaks down these challenges. This is a free webinar, however registration is required. Register now.
